TechPowerUp had the opportunity to test the latest Call of Duty title, Black Ops III on their system and they managed to find out a few issues regarding memory usage and crashes.
As reported, Black Ops III exhibits memory leaks on systems running 8 to 12 GB of RAM by eating up resources as high as 10 GB. That is on a system with an Intel Core i7 “Haswell” CPU with a GTX 980 Ti backing it up. Speaking, Black Ops III also exhibits VRAM issues with the GTX 980 Ti – maxing its usage at 6 GB full with the said graphics card, suffering in noticeable in-game stuttering. Ultimately, the absurd memory usage crashed their test system with 8 GB of system memory.
TechPowerUp also used a GTX Titan X with of course, 12GB of VRAM and they have seen the game taking up to 8.4 GB of video memory with it. System memory usage dropped but for a game that doesn’t even looks close to Battlefield 4, the Black Ops III needs some serious memory management and needs fixing.
